Boost was begun by members of the ISO C++ Standard committee Library Working Group to provide free peer-reviewed portable libraries to the C++ community. An additional objective is to establish "existing practice" and provide reference implementations so that the Boost libraries are suitable for eventual standardization.
Components successfully moved into draft ISO Standard C++09 include shared_ptr, regular expressions, function wrappers and binders.
